Even though the winter season officially ended on April 21st, Grouse Mountain still has a lot of snow and has decided to do something about it. We got creative with the remaining snow and used it to continue building up the Paradise Jib Park. We have pushed all the snow from the Plateau area into Paradise, enabling us to add more features as well as increase their size. There are currently 15 rails setup including our famous 50 footer, 30-foot rainbow, 35-foot double kink, and a variety of others. This new spring setup offers the rider many challenges that are a little more aggressive than the regular season jib park.
According to Terrain Park Manager Jeff Silcock, “The reason for keeping our park in operation is to offer local riders the opportunity to continue riding well into spring. With the modest natural snow season we have had on the West Coast, riders can get a lot more mileage out of their Y2Play pass as well as make next season seem that much closer. With some excellent spring weather in the forecast, our jib park is the perfect place to spend your day.
With no other local mountains open, and Whistler-Blackcomb being the only other mountain open in BC, Grouse Mountain is looking to show our commitment and dedication to terrain parks to customers that may not usually ride here. The jib park is open daily from 10am to 8pm and will be in operation until the snow has all melted away. Those without a pass only need to buy a General Admission ticket to get access to the Paradise Jib Park. General Admission starts at $7.95 for a child, $12.95 for a youth, and $21.95 for an adult. 2003-04 Y2Play passes are still on sale, and can also be used to access the park.
